UWI-ROYTEC has established a tradition of fostering student development, not only with our internal programmes and workshops, but also by sponsoring and engaging student participation in relevant external opportunities. We continue to foster student growth and development by providing the necessary support for students to attend conferences and seminars, and access resources that will help them achieve their personal and professional goals.
Some development opportunities made available to UWI-ROYTEC students include:
A Fresh View to a New You 2016. This 12 week power-packed live coaching group with over 30 transformational leaders from around the world was opened free of charge to UWI-ROYTEC students. Students are empowered to commit to their own breakthrough, success and ultimate happiness. They can stay infused with the wisdom, insights, tools, relationships and resources needed to help them get to where they ultimately desire to be, while also discovering the next best steps and connect with right guides and mentors.
Live weekly webinar from January 28, 2016 to June 9, 2016.

The Trinidad and Tobago Branch of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) hosts the annual National Youth Parliament which is convened at the Office of the Parliament on Wrightson Road, Port of Spain.
UWI-ROYTEC students between the ages of 17 to 21 are usually invited to participate. This is an excellent opportunity for students to develop their debate and civil advocacy skills, learn to construct and defend arguments and gain invaluable experience and exposure.
